ROCKWALL (CBSDFW.COM)  - After two teenage girls recently committed suicide, nearly two-hundred Rockwall parents Tuesday night attended an educational meeting about teenage depression and suicide.

Last fall, at a similar event at Rockwall High School, seven parents showed-up.

However, much has changed in the community since then.  In the past month-and-a-half the issue has hit home with two Rockwall ISD students committing suicide.

In April, 15-year-old freshman Hanna Clark killed herself.

Last month, 14-year-old middle school student Brianna Escobedo did the same.

“We never thought in a million years that this could happen to us because she just wasn’t that type of child,” said Clark’s father, Tim.

Escobedo’s mother said she too never thought this could happen to her daughter.

“Until something like this happens to you as a parent you kind of think it happens to everybody else but not to my kid, not to my family,” she said.

Both parents said their daughters showed no warning signs of being depressed.

“I don’t know what to tell other people,” said Tim Clark.  “If this can happen to us, it can happen to anyone.”
